Each year, Holy Name has one required all-school, student-driven fundraiser. The fundraiser, called the Triple Threat Raffle, helps with funds needed to support the development of the mind, body and spirit of each and every Namer. It allows us to ‘bridge the gap’ between the actual tuition paid for a student and the actual cost to educate each student. In 2020, Triple Threat Raffle Tickets will be sold entirely online!

Who does the Triple Threat Raffle benefit?
The Triple Threat Raffle benefits our greatest asset – our students. The money raised supports the development of the mind, body and spirit of each and every Namer. Ultimately, it allows us to ‘bridge the gap’ between the actual tuition paid for a student ($10,650 in 2020-2021) and the actual cost to educate each student, which is $12,185.
When are tickets available? When is the actual raffle drawing?
Ticket sales will go live at 12:01 a.m. ET on Friday, October 16, 2020. Sales will close at 11:59 p.m. ET on Wednesday, November 18, 2020.

The raffle drawing will be held the afternoon of Friday, November 20, 2020 – right before Holy Name is set to go on Thanksgiving Break.

How much does each ticket cost?
Each ticket costs $10.
How many tickets does each student have to sell? What if there is more than one student in my family?
Every student is required to sell a minimum of twenty (20) tickets, with each ticket costing $10. If your family has multiple students, EACH student will be required to sell twenty (20) tickets.
If I do not sell all my tickets, what happens?
Unsold tickets will be added to individual student tuition bills. For example: If you sell $150 worth of tickets, the remaining $50 would be added to your tuition account.
Who is allowed to buy tickets?
Anyone – family members, alumni, friends, teachers – is allowed to purchase tickets for entry into the Triple Threat Raffle. However, only Ohio residents are allowed to purchase tickets online. If someone out of state would like to participate, he/she should call Mr. Andy Krakowiak at 440-886-0300 ext. 111.
How do I sell tickets?
Every student at Holy Name will receive a personalized URL. Please use this link to make sure all of your ticket sales are attributed to your student account! You will also receive a sample email you can send out to your family and friends.

Additionally, Holy Name will be publicizing the raffle to alumni and supporters. There will be a site where those who don’t have access to a personalized URL can still buy tickets for the raffle.

Does this mean there are no paper tickets involved?
Correct – no paper tickets will be issued this year, eliminating the exchange of cash/checks. Buyers will need to utilize a credit/debit card. However, if, due to a special circumstance, a buyer needs to purchase tickets offline, he/she should call the school at 440-886-0300 ext. 111.
What are the raffle prize amounts?
The Grand Prize will be $10,000! Additional cash prizes include $5,000, $2,500 and $1,000.

Prizes may be subject to tax being withheld. Social security numbers will need to be collected from the winners in order to give them their winnings appropriately.

If a student sells the winning ticket, does he/she receive a prize?
Yes! Student sellers of each winning ticket will also receive a cash prize, with the amounts as follows:

Grand Prize: $10,000 – Student Seller Receives $500 Prize
Second Prize: $5,000 – Student Seller Receives $250 Prize
Third Prize: $2,500 – Student Seller Receives $125 Prize
Fourth Prize: $1,000 – Student Seller Receives $50 Prize

Are there prizes for selling the most tickets?
Yes! The student who sells the most tickets overall will receive a $500 cash prize. The second top seller will receive $300, while the third top seller will receive $100.
Am I allowed to sell more than 20 tickets? If I do, does that qualify me for a prize?
Yes, students are highly encouraged to sell more than 20 tickets if possible.

For every 10 tickets that you sell over the quote of 20 tickets, you will be entered into a raffle for a $250 prize/tuition credit. So, for example: If you sell a total of 30 tickets, you earn 1 entry; if you sell 40 tickets, you earn 2 entries, etc. The winner will be pulled on Friday, November 20, 2020.

Are there any incentives for selling my tickets early?
Yes! If you sell all 20 of your tickets by Thursday, October 29, 2020 at 12 p.m., you will be entered into a raffle to win $100. The drawing will be held on Friday, October 30, 2020.
Last year, I remember there were prizes given to the top selling homerooms. Is that happening again this year?
Yes! This year, the homeroom with the highest amount of ticket sales by percentage each week (this is not a cumulative count) will win a prize. Ticket sales through the Friday of each week at 8 a.m. will count for that week’s total sale. Homeroom prizes will be announced at the end of seventh period of every Friday while the raffle is ongoing.

Prizes for the winning homeroom may include Chipotle or Dunkin’ gift cards; dress down passes for a whole week; no ties/tights for a week; and certificates for cafeteria credit. The prizes for each week will not be disclosed ahead of time.
